My beautiful Phebes gave me most of these miles. I love her, and I know that the sport did not come easy for her. She had heart though, and SO MUCH TRY. She lacked one ride of earning it herself, and maybe some days if the stars decide to align she can get those last 25 miles. But she gifted me with this today adding in Journey's first finish. Kind of an ending, and a new beginning. A long time in the making, but no less appreciated because of it. Maybe "more" appreciated. So the girls and I with all our silliness together have earned our first rider mileage patch. This one in my mind will always belong to Phebes, and maybe the next one...will be Journey's.
